Pupil Premium reports
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England.
It's designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers. More detailed information is available from the DfE website.
Our reports show the impact of our interventions and how we have diminished the differences between the performance of children qualifying for the additional funding and other children in our school.

In 2012 Ofsted stated that, "Pupils reach high standards and all groups, including disabled pupils and those who have special needs as well as those pupils who are looked after, make good progress."
"Teaching is good. Teachers provide interesting activities which challenge pupils and, because of this, pupils work hard and make good progress."
"Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding and enables them to concentrate on their learning. Relationships across all groups are good and pupils show positive attitudes in a wellordered and happy school. They feel safe, know whom to ask for help if it is needed, and have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe."
